Update on University of Ottawa's football home opener on September 7

The OECA has received the following update from the University of Ottawa regarding their home opener football game on September 7 to be held at the new stadium on Lees Avenue:

“We have received permission from the Rideau Conservation Authority to put portapotties and handwashing stations behind the bleachers. We will have security personnel monitoring this area on game days to ensure no one is blocking the bike path. In addition, they will be emptied every Monday after a game and will be locked up to ensure there is no vandalism between games.

Main Street environmental assessment completed

Springhurst Park playground construction to begin August 1

Construction is scheduled to begin on August 1 at Springhurst Park, located at 24 Brunswick Street. The work will begin with the removal and replacement of a retaining wall in the preschool play yard. As a result, the play yard will be closed while the wall is being replaced and once completed, the area will be inspected and re-opened to the public. Construction will then continue in the open area of the park north of the basketball courts and south of the t-ball net until the end of August.

A complete street for Main Street!

With only six councillors opposed, the Main Street Renewal proposal was approved on July 17 by Ottawa City Council.

The "complete street" design for Main Street will transform our community by reducing and slowing car traffic, providing safer and wider sidewalks for pedestrians, a safe cycle track for cyclists, and an improved streetscape for businesses and future development.
